XYZ’s Civil War


The XYZ has a Civil War – just read the comments.

This is great news. Seriously.

In the days when the XYZ was being conceived, one of the aspirations was to create a forum for discussion of ideas.

This might be phrased as seeking to create a marketplace for ideas, where the best ideas win.

For this reason, the Civil War around the merits of Jordan Peterson ticks a lot of boxes for me.

is he a globalist shill? Heck, is he left or right? It’s a thought provoking discussion – and one I am glad to see being had.

I abhor echo chambers where groupthink prevails – so I see this as a sign of health for the XYZ.

Never stop thinking, discussing, testing your ideas. You just might find you change, or evolve as you discover new ideas. That is a key part of red-pilling itself.
